Hi again - I am waiting for biopsy results, had my gallbladder out Tuesday and liver biopsy at the same time. However, before surgery I had chronic UTI's and terrible bladder pain. (I am immune deficient and pain stresses my immune system and makes infections worse.) I had just gotten a great treatment plan from a pain management doc - but that was before all of this appeared. He had prescribed gabapenten and night and hydrocodone when I am in severe pain. Once we realized my issues were liver related, he changed the hydrocodone to oxycodone (which has no acetaminophen). I will be meeting with him next week after I get biopsy results. Do you all have any experience with PBC and pain management? Are narcotics "allowed" at all?
